Marriage   Martin Davenport married Dorothy ?Glover, daughter of William Glover.1 
Death 1735  Martin Davenport died in 1735 at Hanover County, VA.1 
Note   Neither Thomas, Richard, Glover nor any of thel four daughters, were mentioned in Martin's will. But researchers for the descendant families have claimed the relationship for several of them. The author of "The Pamunkey Davenports" states "there is a high degree of possibility" that all 7 "belong among Martin's issue". The first 4 could be children of an earlier wife than Dorothy. However, Nancy Royce, who is one of the contributing researchers to the Davenport site, doubts that all 12 are Martin's children. Evidently among serious Davenport researchers there is not a consensus about this list of children.1,2

William Moore
b. between 1784 and 1786, d. 29 December 1869

Last Edited 11 Apr 2004

Birth between 1784 and 1786  William Moore was born between 1784 and 1786 at VA. 
Marriage 15 November 1804  He married Rebecca Swinney, daughter of Benjamin Swinney and Elizabeth ?, on 15 November 1804 at Franklin County, VA.1,2 
Death 29 December 1869  William Moore died on 29 December 1869 at The home of son-in-law Giles Graham, Ashe County, NC.2 
Note   My favorite candidates for potential parents of William are Abraham Moore and Jenny (or Jane) Moore, who were two separate households in the tax list at the time Franklin County was founded in 1786 (about the time William was born) and both disappeared after 1790. Jenny was probably already a widow, and Abraham could have died in 1790 or 1791. In either case, it would explain why the son of one of them had to be bound out. There was also a Jesse Moore and another William Moore who were in Franklin from its founding, but Jesse was a wealthy landowner. He wouldn't have had a son bound out. If William husband of Rebecca was not the boy bound out, he still doesn't appear to be the son of Jesse, because there were several land transactions between Jesse and a Jacob Moore who was probably his son, and Jacob witnessed some of his deeds. William was never connected with any of Jesse's transactions. The older William could not have been William's father either, because he moved to Kentucky in 1803 and had a son named William who was born after he got there. So either my William was the son of Jenny or Abraham, or he came to Franklin County alone in the early 1800s and married Rebecca. The census-taker could have been mistaken, but in the 1850 census of Floyd County, it states he was born in Franklin, which makes it most likely that he was the bound-out boy. Since one of the children I believe beong to William was named Abraham and none of the children I believe belong to him were named Jenny or Jane, I'm guessing that Abraham is the most probable father. But there is almost no information available about him, so I haven't been able to research him further. 
Fact 1 September 1792  In September 1792, at Franklin County, VA,, The county court ordered that the overseer of the poor do bind William Moore to Enos Miles according to law. Then in July 1795 the court ordered that the overseers of the poor bind William More to Samuel Higgs according to law. At the same time a Sarah More was bound to Jonathan Hall and two other children with different surnames were bound to two other persons. This "being bound out" normally happened when a child was orphaned or when his father died even if his mother was still living. I have no proof that this boy is my William, but there is no other adult William Moore later on in the county except William the son of Lucretia, and he was the son of wealthy slave-owners.
Later, in Sept 1798, the overseers were ordered to bind Mary More, an orphan bastard child to Michael Pilaster. I have no way of knowing if she's related..3 
Fact 1 circa 1802  At Franklin County, VA,, There were multiple William Moores in Franklin County, so it's not easy to state exactly what years this William was listed for personal property taxes. There was a William Moore listed for taxes beginning when Franklin County was formed. He was the only William Moore until 1802, when a William Moore Jr was listed. Back then, Junior just meant younger, not that he was the son of the other William. In fact, the older William was probably the William Moore who married Sarah Grimmett in 1787. That couple moved to Kentucky soon after they sold their land in 1803, which was the last year he was listed for property taxes. He did have a son named William who was born in 1807, after his family got to Kentucky.
I believe that the "William Moore, JR" was William who married Rebecca. If he was born between 1784 and 1786, he would have reached the titheable age of 16 in 1800-1803. William Moore Jr was listed in 1802-1806. In 1807 there were 2 William Moores. One would have been William who married Rebecca and the other would have been the son of William and Lucretia Moore. Lucretia's husband died between 1803 and 1806, probably in Lunenburg County, and she moved with her sons to Franklin. In some years the listing is "William and Mother." It's possible that William son of Lucretia was "William Jr" in 1802 and William husband of Rebecca was listed first in 1807. Both of those Williams were listed until one dropped off after 1817. Beginning in 1818, the one remaining William Moore was listed with "(Shooting Creek)" beside his name. The other William Moore sold his land on Snow Creek in 1819.
There was only one William Moore on the tax list from 1818 through 1834. Another William Moore showed up in 1835. After that there were 2 Williams through 1840. The 1841 list was unreadable. In 1842, only one William Moore was listed, and he was referred to as "Town Creek." 1842 is the year in which William Moore of Shooting Creek disappeared from the land tax list.
William Moore of Town Creek appeared yearly through 1850, the last year on the film. A William Moore was also listed on Runnet Bag Creek in 1845-1847 and a William Moore was on Chesnut Creek in 1849. I don't know if William from Shooting Creek lived in other places after he lost his land, or if he moved to Floyd County, which is where he was in the 1850 census..4 
Census 1810  William Moore appeared on the census of 1810 at Franklin County, VA, as follows: 10100-20100.5 
Fact 1 between 9 August 1814 and 20 February 1815  Between 9 August 1814 and 20 February 1815, William Moore served in the Virginia Militia during the War of 1812 under Captains Holland and Jennings..2 
Fact 1 5 October 1816  On 5 October 1816, at Franklin County, VA,, William Moore bought 50 acres from Owen Griffith adjoining Richard Massey and Hugh Boyd.6 
Fact 1 between 1817 and 1841  Between 1817 and 1841, at Franklin County, VA,, William Moore was listed for Land Taxes on 50 acres of land located on Shooting Creek. Beginning in 1823 he also had 70 acres on Runnet Bag Creek. Beginning in 1827 the 50 acres went down to 42, and the 70 acres were listed as Shooting Creek (they might have been between Shooting and Runnet Bag Creeks, which were near each other.) Beginning in 1836 the 70 acres went down to 40. The above listings match the purchases and sales of land found in the deed records. After 1841 William Moore no longer showed up in the land tax books. The deeds from George P. Thompson, trustee, selling William Moore's land to Evan Griffith, were recorded in 1841..7 
Census 1820  William Moore appeared on the census of 1820 at Franklin County, VA, as follows: 210011-31011. Note the older couple living with them. It's not Rebecca's parents because they are in their own household with children still living at home. So It could be William's parents. This should be a big clue to who they are, but it doesn't fit with William being orphaned at a young age. But the only Moore couple in the 1810 census who were old enough to be William's parents and also disappeared in the 1820 census was the family of Benjamin Moore, and he had a number of young children in his household in 1810 who would then be unaccounted for in 1820 if he and his wife were the couple with William. Maybe these are just some other older couple, somebody's aunt and uncle or something.8 
Fact 1 19 October 1822  On 19 October 1822, at Franklin County, VA,, William Moore bought from David Austin 70 acres adjoining Hale and William Boyd. The deed was witnessed by Angus McGhee, James Canaday and James Via..9 
Fact 1 5 April 1826  On 5 April 1826, at Franklin County, VA,, William Moore sold 8 acres to Evan Griffith out of his 50 acre tract, adjoining Richard Massey. Moore reserved the use of the orchard for 5 years..10 
Census 1830  William Moore appeared on the census of 1830 at Franklin County, VA, as follows: 0111101-1021001.11 
(Consentor) Marriage 16 March 1833  William Moore consented to the marriage of Edmund Spencer Worley and Martha Patsy Moore on 16 March 1833 at Franklin County, VA.12,13 
Fact 1 6 June 1835  On 6 June 1835, at Franklin County, VA,, William Moore and Becca his wife sold to Daniel Griffith 40 acres out of his 70 acre tract, adjoining Thomas Hale, Daniel Griffith and the "waters Buttermilk" [Buttermilk Creek]. The deed was witnessed by John Griffith, Sparrel Griffith and Evan Griffith. Even though her name was mentioned in the first line of the deed, Becca did not sign..14 
Fact 1 between 1837 and 1841  Between 1837 and 1841, at Franklin County, VA,, On December 8, 1837 two deeds were signed from "George P. Thompson, acting as trustee to a deed of trust conveyed to said Thompson by William Moore for the benefit of Samuel Saunders," selling 50 acres and 30 acres of land to Evan Griffith. The 50 acres bordered RIchard Massey and Hugh Boyd, and the 30 bordered Daniel Griffith (he's the one to whom William Moore sold 40 out of his 70-acre tract.) No recognition is made of the fact that Moore had sold 8 of the 50 acres to Evan Griffith already, in 1826. I assume that means that the deed of trust was in effect at that time and Moore did not have the right to have sold the 8 acres. I have not been able to find that the related deed of trust was recorded; at least it's not indexed under William Moore. These two deeds were not recorded until March 1, 1841. The land was still listed on the tax lists as belonging to William Moore until that year, so I wonder if Griffith allowed him to live on it for a few years after the signing. Possibly the court case in 1840 involving William Moore was somehow related to this..15 
Census 1840  William Moore and Elizabeth Jones appeared on the census of 1840 at Franklin County, VA, as follows: 00000001-12001. The woman is the right age to be Elizabeth Jones.16 
Fact 1 3 March 1840  On 3 March 1840, at Franklin County, VA,, Commonwealth vs William Moore and Commonwealth vs Elizabeth Jones were 2 court cases listed together in the Franklin County court minutes. The cases were dismissed in the August session of court, also listed together. The minutes didn't specify what the charge was..17 
Fact 1 between 1841 and 1851  At Floyd County, VA,, A William Moore was on the personal property tax listings of Montgomery County, beginning in 1828. That William was on the Floyd County tax list beginning in 1831 when Floyd County was formed from Montgomery. He was age 20-30 in the 1830 census and 30-40 in the 1840 census. He was the only William Moore on the Floyd tax list through 1840. Beginning in 1841 there were 2 William Moores, listed as William Jr and William Sr. Of the different ages we have for William Jr, son of William and Rebecca, one of them places his birth date at 1820, so he could have reached titheable age in 1841. Or maybe the titheable age was 16 and he was younger. Beginning in 1843 William Jr is listed with Wilson and Allen. Both William Sr and William Jr are listed through 1847. 1848 was unreadable. In 1849 William Jr is gone (William Jr the son of William and Rebecca showed up in Washington County with Wilson and Allen about that time. ) In both 1849-1851 there was only one William Moore Sr.
There was only one William Moore in the 1850 census in Floyd County. He was 64, born Franklin County, obviously not the same William who was there in 1830 and 1840. So at some point the first William Moore left Floyd County and the older William moved over from Franklin Couny in the same year, since they were never both listed on the tax list in the same year. I would guess that happened in 1841. The 2 William Moores might have been listed as Jr and Sr in that year to differentiate them from the other William who was there until 1840. William on Shooting Creek was listed in Franklin through 1841, but he could have moved to Floyd between the date Franklin listed him and when Floyd took their list. The William in 1850 and 1851 had to be the older William, the sole William in the census. I think if the original William had stayed through 1848 or 1849 and William of Franklin came over in 1850 the tax list would have had some different wording beside his name to show that it was a different person.
In 1852 there was one William Moore on the tax list but there was a line through the numbers. After that there were several William Moores and I can't figure out who they all were. The older William was made tax exempt in 1852, so none of them should be him..18 
Census 1850  William Moore and Elizabeth Jones appeared on the census of 1850 at Floyd County, VA, as follows: Wm Moore 64 laborer b Franklin
Elizabeth Jones 32 b Franklin
Cynthia Jones 11 b Franklin
Isam Jones 9 b Floyd
Berrage Jones 7 b Floyd
Rosenbaum Jones 3 b Floyd
Cealy Jones 2 b Floyd.19
 
Fact 1 August 1852  In August 1852, at Floyd County, VA,, the following case was heard in county court: Commonwealth vs William Moore on an indictment for assault. It didn't say who was assaulted or what the plea was. He was found guilty but fined only one cent and costs. I have no way of knowing if this was our William Moore or not..20 
Fact 1 March 1853  In March 1853, at Floyd County, VA,, The county court "ordered that William Moore be exempt from payment parish and county levies for the future provided he pays his taxes heretofore assessed upon him.".21 
(Witness) Birth 8 August 1853  William Moore reported to the county the birth of Walker Jones on 8 August 1853 at Floyd County, VA.22 
Census 1860  William Moore and Elizabeth Jones appeared on the census of 1860 at Floyd County, VA, as follows: Household #642
Elizabeth Jones 40 farming
Lucinda 20
Berrage 15
Rosenbaum 14
Celia A 12
Ezekial 10
Walker 9
Thos 4
Wm Moore 76
I think this couple may have been "living together." When they were together in 1850, I thought she was a widowed daughter. But notice she kept having children after 1850, so somebody had to father them. William did have a daughter Judy who married a Jones, but they lived in Patrick County in the 1850 census and had a completely different list of children.23 
(Witness) Fact 1 1 December 1868  On 1 December 1868, at Ashe County, NC,, Wilson G. Moore was appointed admnistrator of the estate of Elizabeth Jones, deceased, "the next of kin having removed." There are two Elizabeth Joneses whom this could have been. First, Reuben Jones, the husband of Wilson's sister Judy, married an Elizabeth after Judy's death. Elizabeth was his wife in the 1860 census, but by the 1870 census his wife was Rebecca, so we know that Elizabeth did die in the 1860's. But Reuben was right there in the 1870 census, so I can think of no reason it would say "the next of kin having removed." Also since her spouse was still living, I don't think a married woman would have an estate to admnister, since all property was owned in the name of her husband. The more likely Elizabeth Jones is the one William Moore was living with in the census of 1850 and 1860 in Floyd County, VA. There is evidence that William came to NC before 1867, because of the paper signed by him and dated that year in the Graham family papers. Elizabeth could have moved to NC with him and died there. Since she was unmarried, any assets she had would have needed to be taken care of in case of her death..24 
Fact 1 13 June 1871  On 13 June 1871, Rebecca Moore applied for a pension based on William Moore's War of 1812 service. The pension papers are on file at the National Archives. Pension File number W.C.5495
